disagree with me, today's jobs report offered talking points to both. we heard mitt romney say and we heard it earlier, that the fact that it inched up to 7.9%, even though there were 171,000 net new jobs, that permits mitt romney to say there are more people, higher rate of unemployment than when barack obama took office. so, the president can say we've got another month of new hiring and net pluses, so it becomes a wash. anybody disagree with that? >> no. i think that's right. i would say look, the best -- we've known for months i think that the best case political scenario for barack obama when it comes to the economy is sort of a muddle. that the way he loses is if the unemployment rate remains high, jobs -- the jobs are not -- are 75,000, 80,000 jobs created no talking point where he can say it's not where we want it to be but i think it's getting better, so i think a muddle -- it's sort of the tie goes to the incumbent. in baseball, be it's muddled enough it winds up not helping mitt romney which means it helps barack obama a little bit. >> let me ask you, charlie, just switching gear

heard again from the campaigns, jim mess siena and david axelrod, e-mails from the romney campaign, both sides accusing each other of bluffing by -- >> on the state of the race. >> on the state of the race, the ground game, who has the best get out the vote. $2 million by restore our future the super pac for romney into pennsylvania. this is more than -- this is more than a bluff. this sounds real, $2 million is real money. >> here's what's going on here, andrea, i think we have very real evidence of this. is in the nine battleground states, the ability of either candidate to move the numbers has been nearly impossible when either one of them has had some momentum, it's maybe moved their number a point or two, but -- and moved the other guy's number down a point or two but not much. we are seeing almost all of the battlegrounds at some form of a standstill, maybe moving half a point here, half a point there. where you see evidence of romney's uptick in the national polls playing out in the states or in the nonbattleground states, the ones that have been left off, pennsylvania is a classi
not enough room for romney to come back. as you well know, both sides are arguing their case for why they have certain advantages going into election day. what we know is how close it is. and so there's much that we can't know or really say at this point. >> and there's word even from some democrats in michigan that i know the obama campaign says michigan is not in play but some democrats on the ground in michigan telling us, telling me, that it is closep. a lot closer than their xlfrts zo comfort zone and pennsylvania is not perhaps in play but closer than they expected to be. the senate candidate not doing as well as expected given his registration advantage. really risks for the casey campaign with -- up against ap candidate who is from the west which is normally a casey stronghold. so there are a number of places that are a lot closer than the comfort zone for the obama team, despite their very scientifically based huge and we see now the president coming down the steps. >> in casual attire, he will be seen and the picture right there -- >> craig fugate, head of fema, and being g
always follow their feet where they're going. mitt romney's spending a huge amount of time in ohio in the next few days, as is, i would say, barack obama. i think both campaigns recognize this is a not only a close race, because there are a lot of close races in states, but this is a place that mitt romney probably has to have. so, if ever there's going to be a place where they both fight because of the stakes are so high, i think ohio's it. i think it belongs where we now have it, which is in those eight states, ones we know, florida, new hampshire, iowa, virginia, nevada, colorado, new hampshire, i think ohio belongs in that group. i put it on myself i should have put it in there a few days before now. >> mark halperin, take a look at nbc news poll, iowa, president up but wisconsin and new hampshire, we're talking about a really closely fought race. >> based on the totality of the public and private polling the only us in is on governor romney to depp street get to 270 electoral votes. i think governor romney starts with a challenge which is florida, north carolina, and colorado.
